Cycling has grown in popularity amid a social climate that puts a focus on health. The Sunny King Criterium takes cycling to a whole new level and features amateur and professional racers alike. This race, which takes place right in our hometown, kicks off the official USA Cycling Pro Road Tour!
Hundreds of races make their way to Anniston to take part in the premiere race. The Criterium is a lap race which means attendees will see cyclists of all ages and backgrounds flying at speeds up to 35 mph. The Sunny King Pace Car will lead the way!
The course is closed to traffic and stretches about a mile in distance. Sharp turns make for an exciting race as racers exceed the 30 mph mark with relative ease. The Sunny King Criterium will cover the square in downtown Anniston.
Cyclists will lap the course for a set number of minutes and the first to cross the finish line on the last lap prior to time running out is the winner.
This year’s race will be livestreamed through www.annistoncycling.com and a variety of other cycling websites. Brad Sohner will commentate the show while Frankie Andreu will host in a crowd of spectators.
We here at Sunny King Honda are pumped for the Sunny King Criterium this April!
